Great, Cause people who live in urban areas need faster internet....

I've made this nice comparison graph. The tiny red slice at the left is 28k. Most people who live in a rural area get 28k as their average connection.

I pay $60+ a month so I can get 512k (that's the dark orange section with light orange being 1Mb) but I live so far out that my connection averages just above 256k

Now you say the people who live in the city less then an hour from me will be able to ditch their 6M connections (middle of the bar) for a 12M connection.

In my state, over the last 12 years, the top internet speed for Rural residents has increased by 1500% while the top internet speed for Urban residents has increased by 38,300%.

As the internet in urban areas continues it's exponential growth, it has been nearly a decade since there has been an increase in availability or speed for rural residents.

At these rates, in another 12 years the rural residents will have access to 4.5Tb connection speeds while Rural residents will have access to roughly 7Mb connection speeds although the rural speeds show no sign of increasing, likely rural will be lucky to have 1mb by that time.
